Milford Regional Medical Center was recognized as a high performing hospital in two adult procedures for 2020-21 by U.S. News & World Report.
Milford Regional earned high performing ratings for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and heart failure, in recognition of care that was significantly better than the national average, as measured by factors such as patient outcomes. High performing is the highest rating U.S. News awards for those types of care.
“Milford Regional is proud to be among the nation’s select hospitals recognized for high performance,” said Edward J. Kelly, president & CEO of Milford Regional Medical Center. “This is a tribute to everyone at Milford Regional who continually strive to not only meet, but exceed the quality goals set before them. I want to congratulate them for this achievement knowing that our team at Milford Regional is already looking forward to further enhancements on the programs and services we now have in place.”
For the 2020-21 ratings, U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 medical centers nationwide in 10 procedures and conditions. Fewer than a third of all hospitals received any high-performing rating, and only 37 earned this rating in all 10 procedures and conditions. The state and metro area rankings recognize hospitals that received high performing ratings across multiple areas of care.
